When the fruit is cut in half, the thin skin is easy to peel off, revealing a dark red to crimson flesh with many tiny black seeds that can be eaten. The flesh is dense, semi-firm, and tender, and it has a watery texture. The crunchy, chewy seeds make it feel like a kiwi. When it’s ready, a Phoenix red pitahaya should be tight, shiny, and a bright color. The flesh tastes light, sweet, earthy, and slightly acidic, and the seeds add a hint of nuttiness.
